The speed-up of the unencrypted access (18 -> 28 MB/s) is caused by using a
different configuration for kernel 2.6.35; and seems to be unrelated to your
patch. Will try to track down which config option is the culprit.


kernel, dmcrypt?	| good config | bad config
-------------------------------------------------
patched 2.6.35, dmcrypt	  ~ 18 MB/s	~ 13 MB/s
patched 2.6.35		  ~ 28 MB/s	~ 18 MB/s
-------------------------------------------------
plain 2.6.35, dmcrypt	  ~  3 MB/s	~  3 MB/s
plain 2.6.35		  <not tested>	~ 16 MB/s	


Best,
